Application of AR Technology in Spinal Surgery Navigation

Application of AR Technology in Spinal Surgery Navigation

Embarking on a New Era of Precision Treatment

By combining virtual images with reality and integrating tracking systems, it provides surgeons with more intuitive and precise surgical assistance tools.

Real-Time Display: Includes anatomical structures, surgical paths, and surgical markers.

Image Overlay: During surgery, AR glasses externally display the patient’s actual affected area while presenting virtual images internally, synchronizing the inside and outside views.

Accurate Tracking: Optical infrared technology tracks the position of surgical instrument markers in real time, ensuring the accuracy of the navigation system.


Spine Surgery: The spinal anatomy is surrounded by densely packed blood vessels and complex nerves. Minimizing incision size, improving surgical efficiency, and reducing patient recovery time are goals that surgeons strive for. Accurate navigation systems can assist surgeons in achieving these goals.

For Patients:

– Preoperatively, they can intuitively understand the surgical procedure and plan.

– Postoperatively, they benefit from smaller incisions and reduced recovery time.

For Doctors:

– The intuitive interface has a short learning curve.

– The assistance system reduces risks and enhances surgical efficiency.
